Spring is coming, the temperature is getting warmer… and sadly this also means more of those pesky bugs are in the air.
Nothing was worse to me then when I’d go to a camp ground that was away from the city, smelled fresh, clean… and then someone sprays the toxic nasty smelling bug spray all over themselves. If you are like me and hate the smell of bug spray and want to stay away from the toxins then take a look at this all natural and homemade insect repellent:
All Natural Homemade Insect Repellent
I was not a huge “outdoors” person growing up. I mean, like most kids, I enjoyed playing outside… but I wasn’t a real advocate of the woods. Mostly because I hated bug spray. Seriously. I remember closing my eyes and lifting my arms as my mom sprayed stuff all over my body. The smell alone disturbed me, even at a young age. Of course no bugs would come near the stuff… but I always wondered if we humans should either. Thankfully, I found that making your own all natural homemade insect repellent just isn’t that hard.
Stay away from toxic ingredients
One of the most common used ingredients in commercial bug sprays is N,N-Diethyl-m-toluamide, or DEET.
Next time you wont have to ruin the smell of the outdoors with your insect repellent!
